Johnny Depp's son Jack enjoys beach amid reports of 'serious illness'
Jack Depp enjoys the beach with his girlfriend proving that he is better than before after reports suggested he was seriously ill.
Johnny Depp's son, Jack seems to be in good health following reports that suggested he wasn't keeping well. He was recently spotted at a beach in Biarritz in southwestern France on Sunday (July 7) along with his girlfriend. The 16-year old seemed carefree and relaxed as he enjoyed the outing.
Jack was joined by his mother Vanessa Paradis and her husband, director Samuel Benchetrit, as reported by Daily Mail. Jack's outing comes after reports suggested that he had been battling a serious illness. The news emerged when Vanessa missed the Paris premiere of her newest film “A Knife in the Heart.”
When director Yann Gonzalez was questioned about Vanessa's absence from the premiere, he announced that she had chosen to skin the premiere in order to be with her son. It is then he stated that Jack was facing "serious health problems.” “Unfortunately, Vanessa Paradis was not able to join us tonight, she had to be absent because of her son’s serious health problems,” he said, as reported by People.
Johnny and Vanessa dated from 1998 to 2012 and have two children together — 19-year-old Lily-Rose Depp and Jack, whose real name is John Christopher Depp III. This news comes after it has been reported that the actor is being sued over an incident which allegedly took place in 2017 when the actor was shooting for 'City Of Lies'.
Gregg Brooks, who was working as a location manager on the set alleges that the actor punched him while they were on the set. The altercation allegedly occurred on April 13, 2017. In the court documents that have been obtained by People, it states that Johnny lost his temper when Gregg informed him that a shot was remaining. The document further adds that Gregg had to take an LAPD officer for protection.
Gregg alleges that Johnny followed him and allegedly punched him twice before shouting, “Who the f— are you? You have no right to tell me what to do.” He then added that the actor said he’d give him “$100,000 to punch me in the face right now” after he did not react to the punches. The location manager added that Johnny was eventually taken away from the location by his bodyguards.
In the document, Gregg alleges that due to the incident, he “suffered pain, severe humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional and physical distress, and has been injured in mind and body.” However, despite these claims, Director Brad Furman is standing by the actor. Speaking to Page Six in May, Brad labeled the accusations made by Gregg as “exaggerated” and claimed that Johnny was “a consummate professional, great collaborator and a supporter of other artists”.
